In the last run-up to the release of "The Elder Scrolls V: #Skyrim VR," #Playstation has announced that a VR bundle will be available that includes the new version of "Skyrim," reimagined from the original game that was released on PlayStation 3, PC, and Xbox 360, in 2011. Developed by Bethesda Game Studios and published by Bethesda Softworks, "Skyrim" has won more than 200 "Game of the Year" awards, and has been released on several other platforms, and has various editions [VIDEO].

What's included?

The "PlayStation VR Skyrim VR Bundle" includes the PS VR system, a PlayStation Camera, two PlayStation Move controllers, and "Skyrim VR." Also included in the package is an updated PS VR Demo Disc that will feature demos from 13 other PS VR titles.

Release

The "PlayStation VR Skyrim VR Bundle" will be released alongside "The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR" on November 17 in the US. It's available for pre-order and is set to be released at the retail price of $449.99 USD in the US, and $579.99 CAD in Canada.

Controllers

According to PlayStation, "Skyrim VR" can be played with either a DUALSHOCK 4 controller or the PlayStation Move Motion controllers. Each controller will also enable you to customize your movement in both free movement and teleportation. So if you decide not to buy the bundle because you already have everything you need and own a DUALSHOCK 4 controller, you won't need to switch controllers.

Technical

The "Skyrim VR" bundle is going to come with an updated PS VR system, featuring a revised design that enables the stereo headphones to be integrated with the VR headset.

The updated system also includes a new Processor Unit that will support HDR pass through, letting users enjoy HDR-compatible PlayStation 4 content without having to disconnect the Unit between the TV and the PS4.

'Skyrim'

Nothing new has been added to the game, according to the E3 announcement back in June 2017, it is the world of Skyrim as we know it, the whole game, from "The beginning to... well there's no real end", to quote Andrew Scharf, lead producer on "Skyrim VR" at Bethesda [VIDEO] Game Studios. The version that's included in both the standard "Skyrim VR" game, and in the bundle, includes all three DLCs (Dawnguard, Hearthfire, and Dragonborn); so it really is the whole game, with all content included.

With the head-mounted display, you'll be able to experience "Skyrim" in true first-person point of view, and producer Andrew Scharf was particularly excited about the realistic bow and arrow motions that are incorporated into the game. It looks like this new #virtual reality version of "Skyrim" is going to be as interesting as it will be enjoyable, and any new developments in the future can only be positive.
